What's it like to be a student in the FLC Art & Design Department? Ben, Michaela, Hari, and Vivian talk about integrating digital and traditional techniques, interacting with professors and students, and learning the process of designing in an environment that mimics a real-life art career.

Their outdoor classrooms ranged from archaeological sites to alpine meadows and high mountains. Although similar internships have been available since 2008, a recent agreement between federal land agencies and local nonprofits now offers new opportunities.

“I have always been curious about patterns present in the natural world and have been lucky enough to spend much of my life venturing outside, observing and contemplating, lost in wonder at the complexity and mysterious beauty surrounding us,” says Ben Luck, a senior Physics major from Ketchum, Idaho.
“Somewhere along the line, probably due to the inordinate amount of time I spend thinking about moving water, I became interested in waves and the role that periodic functions play in describing the physical world,” says Luck, who is also an expert kayaker who has paddled some of the most remote rivers in the world.

What is your field of study? Why did you choose it?
My Ph.D. is in Instruction and Curriculum with a focus on Research in Teaching and Teacher Education. Within that broad field, my main areas of interest and study are cultural competence and teaching for social justice. I have taught a wide range of courses and consider myself a teacher education generalist. I chose this field because I am passionate about pedagogy and its effect on learners. I wanted to understand more in depth how people learn in ways that are active, meaningful, relevant, and memorable.
